Is Your Garage At Risk Of A Break-In? What You Need To Know

IS YOUR GARAGE AT RISK OF A BREAK-IN?

For most homeowners, the security of their house is vitally important. Even so, many people overlook one of their home’s biggest vulnerabilities: the garage. Thieves are interested in the contents of a typical garage like power tools, bicycles, lawn mowers and vehicles. And when thieves are able to gain access to your garage, they are one step closer to getting into the rest of your home, which puts you and your family at danger.

Preventing garage burglaries is easy as only a few steps are typically needed. Here are some tips for keeping your garage safe and secure.

  • INSTALL A GOOD QUALITY DEADBOLT ON THE SERVICE DOOR

  • Many garages are breached by thieves via the service doors. If the lock on your door is outdated or worn, call a Flying Locksmith to have the lock replaced with a high quality deadbolt.

  • INSTALL A SECURITY SYSTEM

  • For optimal protection, connect your garage to your overall home security system. If someone tries getting in when your system is set, the alarm will sound and can dispatch emergency services to your home.

  • KEEP PRYING EYES OUT

  • To prevent would-be burglars from finding out what you keep in your garage, keep all the windows covered with blinds or curtains.

  • INSTALL MOTION-ACTIVATED LIGHTS

  • Would-be thieves never want to be seen. By replacing your current lights with motion-activated lights, thieves won’t hang around to try to pry a door open pry a door open when your neighborhs can see them, clear as day, trying to break into your home.
